Glory in Creation

by Judy Hitson

Psalm 19: 1 HCSB The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky proclaims the work of His hands.

From a reclined dental chair, I sat looking up through the skylight above to see a clear blue sky. As the dentist waited to be sure the local anesthesia did its work to numb the tooth area he was going to work on, this verse came to mind. I quoted it to him. Knowing  I prayed for him and his family, I asked the Lord for a word to share. The thought of this verse excited me! Sensing it was a word from the Lord for my dentist that day, I asked him to look to the heavens and think of God’s glory in creation. It was a blessing to share this verse from the Psalms with him. Though he acknowledged it, my hope for him to respond with the same excitement I felt, didn’t happen. I believe the Lord wanted to get his attention to look up, know there was a God in heaven who cares for him and wanted to show Himself strong on his behalf. It tore at my heart when I got word he and his wife divorced. O that men would see the glory of God in their lives is my prayer.

Now I hear, Look up. Be watchful for our redemption draws nigh. Looking for this Bible passage, I found Luke 21: 27-28 KJV 27 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. 28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.

Lord what are You saying to us today?

As I read Luke 21, I noticed the New International Version had the subtitle for Luke 21: 5 to the end of the chapter, Signs of the End of the Age. I sensed the Lord says this is a word for us to heed at this time of history as we look to the heavens declaring the glory of God.

Prayer: Lord Jesus help us as people of God to discern the times and follow You day by day. We look up to the heavens that declare Your glory, O God. Assure us  of Your presence, peace and plan for our lives. Amen.
